My beta uses his hammock most of the day, on an off. I have it placed about 3/4"-1" from the top with the tip leading into the floating log. When not completely on the hammock, my beta is in his floating log with his head sticking out and onto the hammock leaf. I will be getting a second leaf for the other end of his tank.
Bettas Love It
on Aug 18, 2018
This is the second betta bed I have purchased because two out of my three bettas love it. I rotate their toys between tanks every few months, so they have all had the opportunity to play with it. When this betta bed wears out, I will definitely buy another one if I still have bettas in the future.
I don't know if they will eventually use the hammock

This has been in the tank for a couple of weeks; placed about 3/4 inch from the waters surface. Both Bettas have inspected it so they know it's there but neither have used it.

The leaf doesn't fit into the suction cup. The piece that is supposed to stick in is too big so I can't use this leaf.
Ok for a little

I don't know if it was JUST my leaf but when it arrived it was perfectly fine. Put it in my betta's tank and he instantly loved it! Would swim around it, float above it and rest on it. Then after about 2 months the green started to chip off and all I see is green flakes floating in his water and he's trying to eat them! I immediately took it out and scooped the flakes out. I cleaned the leaf off and all the green just came off. So now I have a slightly clear leaf that falls out of the suction cup sometimes.

Cute and practical addition to my betta tank. The suction cup is strong and my betta seems to enjoy it. Great price too.
It's a hammock for fish!

They love it and I think they are sleeping a lot better. I'm sure in the wild they probably sleep on leaves.
Okay, but one HUGE problem
on May 12, 2018
Okay, so I saw this little leaf hammock and thought it would be perfect for my little Princess Peach...(she's a peach coloured crowntail, so cute). I put it in her tank and I waited...and waited...and waited. I was cleaning out her tank today and I decided, "She isn't using this...it's understandable, this may not be for everyone." So I was just going to take it out of her tank gracefully. Then I noticed that on the underside of the leaf where the wire is (the wire is in there so you can shape the leaf for your fish to be more comfortable on it) was COMPLETELY RUSTED. I can't imagine that's healthy for a fish. That's why this product is getting a one star rating.
They have to learn to use it

Our beloved beta is getting used to his leaf, give your fish time to learn to use it. He loves it now!
TJ says “meh”

This was highly recommended to me by other Betta keepers, so that TJ could lounge around. Instead, TJ prefers swimming laps, he is highly active, and only swims past and around it.
